5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2010

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at Pear Tree Farm. Its informal atmosphere helps us to relax and really feel 'at home'. Excellent hospitality from Jill, Steve, and their four-legged companions - Mol, Meg and Freddie are so friendly and easy going - they are just so pleased to see us. We like our bedroom ver much especially - the interesting barn door, spacious bathroom, and most importantly, the peace and quiet to ensure a good night sleep. It is a great delight to enjoy the afternoon tea and cake prepared by Jill and Steve, so much so that we make sure we will be back in time to enjoy this treat. The quality of breakfast is fantastic and you would not need any lunch! Their delicious cocktail and dinners are so good that it is a highlight for our stay. There are interesting walks in the local areas. We are so pleased to discover this wonderful gem and have no hesitation to sing their praises.

We have just enjoyed 4 nights staying with Steve and Jill at Pear Tree Farm, to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary on 28th April 2010. We have never been to Herefordshire before, and were impressed by its beauty on the way to Wales in 2008. We googled for small luxury farmhouses, and were impressed by the reviews on trip advisor of Pear Tree Farm. It certainly lived up to our expectations!

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted so warmly, and nothing was too much trouble! We stayed in the Cider House which has its own kitchen and lounge area and is on a ground floor level, this suited us well for the length of time we were staying, and we were able to use the fridge for our delicatessen goodies from Deli on the Square in Ludlow, which we enjoyed on one of the evenings we were there. The Cider House had all mod cons - and we were particularly impressed with its underfloor heating in the bathroom, and we had a lovely array of toiletries to enjoy. It was a wonderfully comfortable room. I did look at the other rooms whilst I was there and they were all beautiful.

The house is beautiful and Jill and Steve say in their welcoming literature that 'their house is our house' and this is so true. We were the only ones staying there at this time, and were certainly pampered and made to feel very special!

We enjoyed tea and homemade cake on arrival - and each afternoon thereafter! Infact we found ourselves looking forward to returning to Pear Tree Farm each afternoon for this decadent pleasure! We arrived in beautiful sunshine so were able to take tea on the lawn, and relax on the garden swing - there are plenty of places to sit within the grounds, and I particularly enjoyed the early morning sunshine, sat on a bench outside the tree house with Mol ( one of the lovely collie dogs) for company!

Breakfast is a delight, with homemade jams, freshly squeezed juices, Steves wonderful home-made bread, fruits and whatever you choose for your 'main breakfast', we particularly enjoyed the kedgeree and the devilled kidneys!!

You have to try Steves home-made cider! Its wonderful - particularly sitting in the lounge by a roaring log fire, with a good book!

Our highlight was our Anniversary dinner! We were provided with our own personalised menu and enjoyed cocktails and canapes in the lounge with a sumptious dinner with local produce in the dining room, including Steves home-made bread! It was a good excuse to get dressed up! We certainly would recommend dining at Pear Tree Farm - it is a must! Jill is a wonderful cook!

The house is so interesting with lots of memorabillia and good books, you could just stay at Pear Tree Farm and not go anywhere and feel you have had a relaxing break, and without question - wonderful food!!

We loved Herefordshire - particularly Ludlow with its fine array of exquisite shops and delicatessens. We enjoyed lovely sandwiches with home-made bread and tea in the Castle Tearooms with a good ambiance. We also can recommend Berrington Hall, Stocktonbury Gardens and an attempt at the Wigmore Loop! ( unfortunately we got rained on - but it was a good excuse to go back to the house and enjoy Steves cider!!)

We ventured into Wigmore on our first evening ( about a 5 minute walk) and sampled both the pubs and had a meal which was fine. We also enjoyed dining at the Jolly Frog at Leintwardine ( 10 minute drive away) - they do a wonderful seafood platter on a Friday evening, which looked marvellous. There are wonderful views from the Jolly Frog - and it would be lovely to sit outside there on a warm summers day.

All in all, we had a wonderful time at Pear Tree Farm and in Herefordshire, we feel thoroughly spoilt and relaxed,and would love to go back. It is worth every penny we paid to stay there! Steve and Jill deserve to do well, they are such fantastic hosts! If you enjoy good food, want peace and quiet, and fantastic hospitality you can not go far wrong than staying with Steve, Jill, Mol, Meg ( collies) and Freddie (cat) at Pear Tree Farm

We stayed with Gill and Steve for a couple of nights to celebrate our anniversary.

They couldn't have been more welcoming it's like visiting old friends, so much so that it would be easy to forget you're in a B&B and leave without paying. The room was first rate and the food is some of the best we've ever had. (We don't say that lightly as we're both foodies.) Steve's pear bread was particularly good.

It's also nice to have access to a good collection of books, music and a friendly cat whilst away.

We can't wait to return and recommend a stay without hesitation.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at PTF. The standard of everything was second to none. Fantastic welcome from Stephen, Jill & the animals on arrival, lovely home cooked locally sourced food, good wine and a charming house. We instantly felt at home. We were also very lucky with the fact that the four other guests were lovely so we enjoyed two evening meals in excellent company. The house is very interesting with lots of things to look at, photographs, books and a great CD collection. Stephen & Jill are perfect hosts and if anyone is thinking of going into this business they should spend time at PTF to see how to do it properly.

We stayed for a long weekend here with friends to celebrate a birthday, and the six of us (3 couples) took over the whole house. Steve and Jill were delightful hosts - in fact perfect hosts. They were welcoming friendly and helpful, and served up delicious food. We stayed in for one evening and enjoyed a fantastic meal - all local produce, beautifully cooked and presented. Breakfast was a delight too - freshly squeezed juice, home made marmalade and jam, nice cereals and cooked...including devilled kidneys! The house itself was warm and cosy and very relaxing to be in. On the doorstep are lovely walks and of course Ludlow with its 3 michelin starred restaurants (we enjoyed La Becasse). On our last night we decided to eat in the local pub, which afforded us a sight we have never witnessed before: a cushion fight in the public bar! We've never been to Shropshire before, and would like to return: this was a perfect weekend. I can't recommend this place highly enough

If you want complete luxury at affordable prices then this must be one of the best places to stay in England. We've stayed in many places in the UK over the years, and generally been disappointed with the standard of accommodation, unless you pay an absolute fortune. Your stay in this beautiful home will begin with the warmest welcome you are ever likely to have, even your mother won't make you feel at home as Jill and Steve did. Tea and cakes on the lawn on arrival, what a great way to start a holiday in this glorious, unspoilt part of England. If only every travel experience was a good as this. They also do a great three course evening meal if you want. Don't bother with the Michelin star restaurants in Ludlow, you need go no further than Pear Tree Farm.

To you, a fellow traveler: I sincerely hope that you get the chance to stay at Pear Tree Farm. You will enjoy every moment.

My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend with Jill and Steve and it was absolutely perfect. We arrived a bit late, but Jill and Steve eagerly greeted and welcomed us with a pot of tea. We awoke to the sound of little baby lambs (you should definitely visit in March so you can witness these adorable creatures learn how to walk and talk). After I took a million photos of the little ones, we went downstairs for the most scrumptious breakfast. It is the kind of breakfast where you have to have a bit of everything and then about half way through you realize that you are just going to go for it and make it your breakfast AND lunch. Jill is a master at the Agar and Steve has been making homemade bread since he was six.

We spent our Saturday on an INCREDIBLE walk that took us to the ruins of Wigmore Castle and then through the hills of Herefordshire. You literally wander through open fields and farms and find yourself right in the middle of the lambs and ewes. Lovely.

We came home to tea and a coffee/pecan cake (Jill is a culinary genius) that demanded I eat 2 slices. Freddie (perhaps the coolest cat I have met) joined us on the couch for a little relaxation. And what afternoon tea would be complete without a little cider. Steve has many talents! He makes his own cider and it is fabulous.

If it is possible to out-do breakfast, Jill completely wow-ed us with dinner. It was truly a feast.

I find myself wanting to use over the top adjectives to describe what a wonderful time we had here, but none of them seem to suffice. So I will just say that you must find a way to experience the beauty yourself. You will wish you could stay....always.
